The University of Akron Medina is located just south of the City of Medina, bounded by Lake Road to the east and Wedgewood Road (Rt. 162) to the south.
UA Medina is located on about 50 acres of land in Lafayette Township that was gifted to The University of Akron by the Medina County Commissioners. The site is co-located with land that is being developed into a business innovation park by the Medina County Port Authority and the Medina County Economic Development Corporation.
Groundbreaking occurred on October 24, 2005. Site development started in August 2006. The construction contract was awarded in September 2006 and we opened for our first semester of classes on January 14, 2008.
